Easy Tomato Bisque Soup

 

I love tomato bisque soup.  The creaminess, the tangy tomato, the hint of fresh basil all work together to create a deeply satisfying dish.  It can be a main meal with a little bread and salad on the side, or it can serve as a complement to a grilled cheese sandwich.  This easy tomato bisque recipe comes together in minimal time and with minimal effort since it uses canned crushed tomatoes that don’t need to stew as long.

Avocado Orange Salad

 

Here’s a nice salad to enjoy during these last summer days.  Or if you’re like me and live in southern California — here’s a nice salad to enjoy pretty much any time!  This light and summery orange avocado salad has the perfect balance of juicy citrus and smooth creaminess from the avocado.
